Smell-o-Vision is Real!
"I was very impressed with how precise OVR’s ION device was. The company calls it the most precise device of its kind, and I believe it."
Our very own Jesse Stein, OVR Technology’s VP of Marketing, provided Erikka Innes with a product demo.
Here's a bit of what Erikka has to say:
"The ION is a lightweight, wireless device that precisely emits scent particles to the user in coordination with virtual reality technology designed to deepen the immersive experience.
During the demo, a ghostly virtual reality lawnmower drove by and the grass cuttings that appeared to hit my face smelled of fresh grass. In another scenario, I was able to create a pizza, smell all the toppings and then smell the pizza cooking. Their last demo was of a campfire setting which smelled of real smoke and smores. A great thing about OVR Technology’s smell-o-vision is how it is personalized to your own actions. When you move the controls using the Oculus, it can sense how close or far away you are, and sends that information to the OVR device to control when to release a scent.
